DUBAI - Hayward Tyler, which specializes in performance-critical pumps and motors for the energy sector, has been awarded a multimillion-dollar contract to supply a glandless pump package to major chinese EPC, Shanghai Electric (Group) Corporation, for installation at Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park Phase IV, a 950MW Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) and Photovoltaic (PV) Hybrid IPP.

The project will make use of three different technologies to generate clean energy, consisting of 600MW from a parabolic basin complex, 100MW from a solar tower, and 250MW from PV panels.

The project is acknowledged to be the world’s largest investment project using concentrated solar power on a single location, an unprecedented design for an independent power producer. The Dubai solar park is an important project supporting the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050, which aims to increase Dubai’s use of clean energy to 75 percent of their total energy mix by 2050.

“We are elated that our proprietary glandless pumps will contribute to this ambitious project,” said Mike Turmelle, managing director of the Engineered Pumps and Motors Division of Avingtrans, which owns Hayward Tyler. “We’re proud to be part of the clean energy market.” 

Hayward Tyler’s glandless pump packages will be a critical part of the SGS (Solar Tower Steam Generator System) and consist of six forced-circulating pumps and four start-circulating pumps. The pumps will serve the 100MW CSP Tower.
